A wrongly convicted man must try to survive a public execution gauntlet staged as a game show in THE RUNNING MAN.

The future’s not so bright in The Running Man. Set in a dystopian American circa 2019, Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as a wrongly convicted cop in this science fiction action film. Accused of killing rioters, Ben Richards is sent to jail but escapes only to find himself on the popular television show called, you guessed, it “The Running Man.” In order to regain his freedom, he must battle a bunch of professional killers on this brutal execution slash game-show. In order to prove his innocence, he has to tap into government computers to prove the guilt of the regime who’s trying to frame him.

Part of Nitehawk’s November SCI-FIGHTERS midnite series.
